The final edition of the Knokke-Heist EXPMNTL film festival was held in Belgium in December 1974.
You should definitely focus on it, and given its official and revered status, there should be ample Belgian archives.
Also, Oberhausen always included a lot of experimental work --- at least when Karola Gramann was director in the mid-1980s.
Good luck,

Hello everyone.? I am developing a research project on the history of alternative/experimental/avant-garde film festivals in Europe and would like to ask for your advice.? I want to know if anyone can recommend any festivals I should consider in my research.? I am primarily concerned with festivals that are solely dedicated to alternative/experimental/avant-garde film and video but would also like to consider noteworthy sidebars and programs in larger and broader festivals.? In addition, I am most interested in festivals that were established pre-1980s.? I would like to look at both continuous long-running festivals and also limited life festivals.? Thank you in advance for any information you can give me.

Best regards,
